London, ON, May 2009
About this photo: It's cloud week all week long here at Written Inc. If you'd like to share your own cloudy vision, click here for the latest Thematic Photographic.We've been having some serious weather fun here in the Great White North. Yesterday, two confirmed tornadoes touched down on either side of our burg. Near Aylmer, a woman washing her hair at the time miraculously avoided injury as her house was reduced to matchsticks. Near Leamington, an old barn was similarly destroyed.
No major damage in in London, but it made me wonder about an amazing phenomenon: when late evening storms leave the area, the clouds in their wake are rendered in colors and textures that almost defy description. I can't explain it, but I do enjoy the show. I hope you enjoy this one.
Your turn: Why do we feel small when nature puts on this kind of show for us?
